Yesterday I had one of those days that has left my quads sore, my calves throbbing and the tops of my toes still tender and painful. I hiked, in flip flops, for miles.
And I am now going to indulge myself in figuring out just how far I traveled.
Need to know info: 3 city blocks = 1 city avenue. 20 city blocks = 1 mile.
I had a PTA meeting at Iz's school. Getting to school both bus and foot: 8 blocks.
Trip home, flip flops flapping the whole way: 26 blocks.
The hike from a meeting in Chelsea to picking Jack up at school: 20.
Roundtrip to the apartment to get his ripstick: 8.
Roundtrip to take Iz and friends to a restaurant birthday party: 20.
Roundtrip with Jack to meet a friend for ice cream on Bleecker: 24.
Running to the car at 11th and 5th to get a friend's parking spot at 12th and 7th: 7.
Total: 113 blocks. Which equals 5.65 miles.
I'm thinking that effort deserves a really long foot massage. And a pedicure.
